Sally & Don live in a 130 year old farm house in central Illinois. This album was recorded at their home studio in that old house over the span of about one year in 2003.
* "This CD is full of great R&B and good old N'awlins soul and boogie woogie. The playing is great, the sound is great, and it's got really cool songs and Sally is as soulful as they come. I'm still enjoying this CD after months of it being in the house. JAMES PENNEBAKER - Guitar, steel guitar, fiddle for Delbert McClinton.
* "Singer/keyboardist Sally Weisenburg fronts a top band on "Homemade & Hot" (5 Cats Records), a collection of smoothly grooving original tunes (most written by ace guitarist Don Berbaum). This is a group of seasoned pros who know how to let a song breathe, with great material: the slinky "Words With No Meaning", the soulful horn fueled "Never Felt So Good", and the fast stepping opener "I Want It" are highlights of an excellent set.
